Tennis Can Be a Frustrating Sport

My favorite thing about this video is not the fact that Mikhail Youzhny bludgeons his face with a tennis racket (though that is enjoyable). What I really enjoy is when the announcer likens Youzhny's behavior to that of Vincent Van Gogh and then -- emboldened by what he feels is a brilliant analogy -- goes on to point out that Youzhny, like Van Gogh, has short hair as well.

One man (a professional tennis player) hits himself in the face with a tennis racket because he's extremely frustrated about losing a point. Another man (an artist) cuts off his ear because he's insane (and I think it had something to do with love also). And, both have short hair.

What are the odds?

they are both artists Matt. until you realize this you will never appreciate the many facets of Youzhny.

also unlike Sampras Youzzhny does not look and walk like a chimp.
